The Best Restaurants in VALLE DE GUADALUPE

Baja California’s Valle de Guadalupe is one of Latin America’s largest wine producers, supplying most of the product consumed nationally. Just 90 minutes from San Diego, the Ruta del Vino was settled by Jesuit missionaries in the 19th century and further cultivated by Russian immigrants in the early 20th. Today there are over nearly 100 wineries, ranging from artisanal operations to Latin America's largest (L.A. Cetto). Nearly 50 restaurants and campestre kitchens – seasonal, outdoor restaurants – operate both in and around wineries, creating rustic, imaginative dishes from the region’s bounty of fresh seafood, game meat, produce and beef from the nearby state of Sonora. Valle chefs apply French, Italian, Mediterranean and even Russian preparations to local ingredients, creating an international farm and sea-to-table experience.
